It is great to hear from you and to learn a little more about India. My geographical knowledge is abysmal but your adventures are encouraging me to get out the atlas and reference books. It will be even better when you can share your photos. Take care. Mx

Glad to see you made it! It's v.weird reading about your trip via the blog! Lovely, lovely, lovely.

Bon voyage! xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hi D - How lovely to hear from you and read your fantastic post from a wonderful-sounding place. How brilliant that you managed to get into the barracks, too! You're obviously having the most amazing time. Can't wait to see some pics when you get back. Give Little Harry a big cuddle from me. Good luck for the rest of your adventures.

Wonderful words and it looks like heaven. Just don't get too attached to Butch!
Love you Mum

Just read your blog a week after your mail. Wish I had read it earlier. I live here in Pune and its made me nostalgic about India all over again. Thanks for a fresh take on my lovely country. Love to you.


Hello Jayshree - I'm glad you got the email. Meeting you was definitely one of the highlights - and there were quite a few - of my stay in India. Thank you for sharing your city with us. I can't wait to come back; already thinking about the next visit so, I do hope we can meet again. DXXX


I am in Pune at the end of the month and looking to visit Kirke RA Barracks. Can you pinpoint where it is please?

Hello Glyn

Have sent you an email with information and map - hope it helps. Enjoy your visit.

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.

    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.

    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?

    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
